I know someone has heard this song with these lyric's >>

"I'm busted, downhearted and disgusted, and bent all out of shape....." then there was the refrain

"..Ya talk about the lowdown blues, I've got 'em, I feel like I'm gonna hit rock bottom, yeah, oh yeah..." I think it's from a 70's song.

Interesting search. I thought it was Bessie Smith, or Hank Williams on similar text, but it turns out to be the Nace Brothers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cokJUIWU1eQ

Pretty happy for lowdown blues!

Rastamon, I believe you are thinking of the Elvin Bishop version from the "Rock My Soul" album, 1972. Female vocals by Jo Baker.

IMHO this album is Elvin Bishops best studio work. An all time favorite of mine.
